Not a finalist but I believe we are involved (to what extent, though, I don't know).

Penn Basketball just tweeted out "High Major" but I couldn't open the link. Does anyone know what that is referring to?

Yes, it was a response to Nat Graham's tweet about Penn's Athletics facilities: Palestra, Franklin Field/Penn Relays, Penn Park/24 acres (no tailgating allowed), and Weiss Wghtrm/best in US.

I guess the tweet would have been too long to mention the skating arena/hockey.

Wow (or Ugh)! That's the Tigers' third pickup for 2018.

I know a number of people here are not concerned, but it is tough to watch Princeton and Harvard reload while Penn cannot seal the deal with any of the many players that have been offered spots.

While the Quakers may not need many players for 2018, the more players taken off the board (especially by other Ivy schools) the more difficult it will be to get talented players to compete with Harvard, Princeton and Yale.

Trey Wertz says Penn is one of the 5 teams recruiting him hardest:

to spare adam zagoria a lot of confused emails from you guys, i let him know there was a mistake with the three stars there as we're not involved with anyone who has more than two stars. go ahead and delete your drafts.

Thanks for the heads up. He also mentioned Princeton as another Ivy he is considering. Difficult to tell what factor is most motivating his choice of schools.

It's strange - I watched the highlight video of one of Providence Day's games vs. High Point Christian. He was fairly uninvolved from a highlight standpoint. It looks like he plays for a very good team.

One video is not a representative dataset on his ability as a player, I realize. Still, if the coaches like him, I hope he becomes a Quaker!

Archbishop Wood (Pa.) 2018 G Andrew Funk tells me he's down to three schools: Bucknell, Penn and Delaware. Funk, a 6-4 guard, will be taking officials to each. Bucknell (Aug. 25-27), Delaware (Aug. 30-31) and Penn (Sep. 8-10).

Also missed this from 8/7

Ryan Young committed to Northwestern. Had just gotten an offer from Maryland so was probably headed off the two* bus (and off our radar).

To the staff's credit, some number of the guys they've lost on this year have been guys whose recruiting has exploded.

That's more a defense than a credit, and if you're in hard on someone from the start it should at least keep you in the running if not the lead when bigger offers come in. Sorry but this is just massively discouraging so far, especially considering the leaps the rest of the league are making.

No need to apologize to me. This was my biggest concern about this staff when Jerome was replaced. I happen to think their success the last two years (landing Brodeur, having a clearly better evaluation of Betley than most, and last year's class) should probably get them som leeway.

It's much harder to recruit when the pool of kids that HYP have to decide whether they can afford to touch and you get a free run at shrinks by nearly half one class to the next.
